Just bought one of these xcar360 ones, followed all instructions to the letter, read this entire thread once before buying and once more after receiving and no go.
Software loads fine on my Windows 7 Home laptop, and 2 XP machines from work, the scanner is found by all PC's in hardware and the software program itself but everytime I run scan or car ID I get 2 error messages: can't read IKE modile and DME I think is the second one. Software then quits and I have to start over.
As well I: tried it with the key in both positions, as well as with the car running with no change; I downloaded the software directly from PASoft, no change; verfied the amber light lights right away with connection and during scanning the green light flashes.
I opened the scanner tool and checked connections according to the PC board and all seem OK as well
Ideas? Its an 02 330xi
